Welsh guitarist Gwenifer Raymond tells tales without words with her fast and aggressive fingerpicking - adapting “American Primitive” style for "old weird Wales." The fast and aggressive part might be due to her having played in punk bands, but her musical roots extend to the blues, opera, and folk, while leaning into the darkness, goth imagery, and British paganism - and sometimes there's blood. She joins us from Brighton, England to play tunes from her new record, Strange Lights Over Garth Mountain, recorded at home during lockdown. -Caryn Havlik
